    access to native phone file system

    Plz help me. I am developing an application in J2ME targetting all Nokia 60 series & 80 series phones (Symbian OS).
    There I want to access native phone file system. lets say from the application clicking on a menu will open up the gallery foldeer and view the images / videos/ tones etc. as it viewed when we normally access the gallery.

    The problem is that by using JSR 75 API though I can access the native file system but it is supported by only Feature Pack 2 & 3 (NOT 1 which includes most 60 series phones).

    Can you tell me how I can do that? If not in J2ME then in which platform???
    This is very very important to me. Please make it urgent.
    Thanks in advance.

    No, you do not get complete file system access from J2ME. Those phones with JSR-75 support provides some access via the FileConnection API. Such phones, so far, are the 6630, 6680, 6681, 6682, N90 and N70.

    And if the phone does not come with JSR-75, then you can't add it later, either.

    If you want complete file system access, use C++.

    Also, please, don't cross-post the same question so many times.

    Re: access to native phone file system

    Thanks petrib for your reply.
    I was desperate that's why I posted so many times. Sorry for that.

    As per your comment It means that I was right. coz I tried a lot with JSR 75.

    Anyways now that it's clear that complete file system access can be done with C++ only.
    Can you provide me some links or some sample codes where it's been implemented.

    It's very urgent for me.
    Thank You once again.

    It's possible.
    See: "Accessing native methods from a Midlet "..the 'Bridge' workaround.

    Re: access to native phone file system

    That approach still requires that the file system access code is written in C++ in a separate application/process (which is what I said). So, instead of a single application, you need to write (and test) two.

    And, of course, it works only on phones where it is possible to write "native" apps. E.g., all Nokia Series 40 phones are excluded from that.

    Of course, it requires some C++, but the majority of the application can be J2ME based.
    The original request was for S60 & S80 devices and any language that would help.
